View Full Version : Combining hydro-air and radiant
04-15-2012, 10:15 PM
I am working with a contractor on a 3500 SF new construction in Boston. We are likely going to use either a Buderus or Viessmenn boiler.
Can a system be designed that uses the boiler for both under floor radiant as well as hydro-air to supplement (there will be a lot of glass in this house)?

Yes, very easily.

We do it all the time here in Minneapolis. But if you have a lot of glass, you should have a lot of radiant floor, wall and/or ceiling. Air is for cooling.
Your designer should be answering this question for you.

Done all the time but you should be educated to the variations before jumping in to prevent errors that can create operational nightmares. Viessmann has some excellent training right down the road in Rhode Island.

Skipped is right.
I still have to turn the radiant floor off in the summer for a client that likes to run AC and bsmt radiant at the same time...
